Unlike most non-profits, the Harvest of Hope Foundation is a “direct service provider” which means that we provide immediate and direct assistance to migrants at the time of need. Because our organization provides direct aid, we are ineligible for most federal or other foundation grants.

All operational funding for the Harvest of Hope Foundation comes from private financial donations, sale of goods, sale of antiques, memorabilia and collectibles on eBay and antique shops, tangible donations, as well as various fund raiser events scheduled throughout the year.

Hotline available 24 hours day, 7 days a week.

Migrant Farm Workers ::: About Harvest of Hope Foundation ::: Seasonal Farm Workers

In honor and memory of his grandmother, Dr. Helen Zand, who was a social worker for the poor, Phil Kellerman established the Harvest of Hope Foundation in 1997 to raise private funds to exclusively assist migrant farm workers and their families around the country. Since its initiation, the Harvest of Hope Foundation has distributed
over $1 million dollars for:

  • Emergency aid for vehicle repairs, transportation, housing, utilities, rent, medical services and prescriptions, clothing, food, funerals, and legal costs
  • Educational assistance to migrant students attending college and post-secondary institutions, including help with tuition, board and books
  • Grants to health and other support service agencies and organizations serving migrant farm workers

Federal, state and local aid to migrant farm workers is limited and often not available at all. Many Americans know so little of the agricultural, economic and cultural contributions of migrant farm workers who harvest a large share of our nation’s fruits, vegetables and other foods. The goals of Harvest of Hope are to open the eyes of individuals to the hard work and struggles of our nation’s migrant laborers while filling in some of the gaps in service to this population via emergency and educational aid. Please review the attached list of recent aid provided by the Foundation and a list of funds housed under the foundation.

The Harvest of Hope Foundation is a tax-exempt, non-profit organization and its federal identification number is 16-1523238.

For more information about our organization, please contact us at 352-372-1312, or by email at info@harvestofhope.net.

The Harvest of Hope Foundation is a public, non-profit agency governed by a Board of Directors who subscribe to the mission and values of the Harvest of Hope Foundation. [read more]

For Immediate Release – Press Releases | Media Relations | Download Media Kit | Harvest of Hope Foundation

The Harvest of Hope Foundation for migrant farm workers welcomes requests from media for interviews, organizational information, and presspass to fund raiser events.

The Harvest of Hope is a very unique, grass roots nonprofit and we are the only national foundation set up exclusively to provide emergency and educational financial aid to migrant farm workers and their families. Because the foundation provides “direct financial aid” we are unfortunately largely ineligible for many grants from other nonprofit and from corporations. We rely completely on individual and group donations, and this is where you can be of help.

Print Media:

We welcome the opportunity to do interviews for print media.

Television & Radio Broadcasts:

We welcome the opportunity to do interviews for radio and television media.

IMPORTANT, PLEASE READ. We receive many requests from student journalism and media majors and film-makers wanting to do stories about migrant farm workers. These requests usually entail wanting to get out in the fields to film and to interview migrant workers. This is extremely difficult as many migrant workers live and work in rural areas, and are reluctant to be filmed or interviewed. Arranging these interviews is logistically difficult and time consuming and thus the Harvest of Hope Foundation must say no quite often to these requests.

If you have any questions regarding scheduling a interview or need further information about the Harvest of Hope Foundation, please feel free to contact us at 352-372-1312 or by email at info@harvestofhope.net.

Migrant Farm workers Earn Your Support ::: Harvest of Hope Foundation – Gainesville, Florida ::: Finacial Donations are Welcomed!

The Harvest of Hope Foundation lends a “helping-hand” – not a “hand-out”. Our organization uses strict guidelines for the distribution of emergency funds. Every client requesting financial assistance must show that they are motivated to help themselves by directly partnering with our foundation to find a suitable and safe resolution to their problem.

Eighty (80) cents of every dollar donated goes to provide direct emergency and educational financial aid to migrant farm workers and families. Ten-twelve (10-12) percent is used for administrative expenses and a small 8 percent compensates the part-time operational staff for managing the Harvest of Hope Foundation. These percentages are good as compared to other nonprofit organizations.

Volunteers Needed | Harvest of Hope Foundation | Student Service Learning Hours Available

Winner of the Audience Award for Best Documentary at the San Antonio Film Festival, The Harvest/La Cosecha tells the story of 3 of the estimated 400,000 children in the US who leave behind their homes, schools, and friends to pick the food we all eat–without the protection of child labor laws. The lives of these migrant farmworker children and their families is illuminated by the award winning filmmaker U Roberto Romano. The filmmakers, including Executive Producer Eva Longoria, have been to Capitol Hill several times to show the film to members of Congress in support of the CARE act to change child labor laws to protect children working in agriculture.
